Due to illness, we regret to announce Gérard Korsten will be unavailable to conduct the last concert in our Mozart Explored: 1783 series ‘An Academy in Vienna’ on Thursday 26th May 2016. Taking Gérard’s place will be the wonderful Jaime Martin. Already a close associate of The London Mozart Players, the orchestra are due to perform with Jaime at the Peasmarsh Festival this year – a chamber festival co-directed by Anthony Marwood.
Jaime Martín has risen quickly to international acclaim as a conductor in recent years, following his prominent career as a flautist. Having taken up the role of Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of Gävle Symphony Orchestra in September 2013, Jaime is also Chief Conductor of the Orquestra de Cadaqués and Artistic Director of the Santander International Festival. As a guest conductor he has worked with an impressive list of orchestras that includes the London Philharmonic, Beijing Symphony and the Academy of St Martín in the Fields, to name but a few.
The LMP look forward to welcoming Jaime to the stage at St John’s Smith Square next Thursday!
